Privacy policies of other websites

The European Alternatives website contains links to other websites. Our privacy policy applies only to our website, so if you click on a link to another website, you should read their privacy policy.

Affiliate marketing

On the website are so-called affiliate links, which are marked as such. These links lead to external websites, which are not part of our service. If a product is subsequently purchased on the website, we receive a commission. Technically, no data is collected for this on the website european-alternatives.eu and no external codes are integrated on our website for affiliate marketing. However, the links to the external websites contain information (e.g. a parameter), which informs the external website that the user comes from us. It is possible that the external website sets a cookie to link this information to the behavior on the website.

Live chat - Userlike

This website uses Userlike, live chat software produced by the company Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. You can use Userlike to chat with our employees in real-time. At the start of the chat, the following personal data is collected:

Depending on the course of the conversation with our employees, further personal data may be provided by you in the chat. The nature of this information depends heavily on your request or the problem you are describing.

All our employees have been trained in data protection and in the handling of customer data. All our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality and have accordingly signed an addendum to their employment contracts which obliges them to maintain confidentiality and observe data protection.

By accessing the european-alternatives.eu web page, the chat widget is loaded as a JavaScript file from AWS Cloudfront. The chat widget technically represents the source code executed on your computer that enables the chat.

In addition, European Alternatives stores the history of live chats. The purpose of this is to save our customers from having to go through a long history of requests, and for us to constantly monitor the quality of our live chat service. Processing is permitted pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Book f, GDPR. If you do not wish your live chat history to be stored, please do not hesitate to contact us using the contact details listed below. Stored live chats and any other of your data will then be deleted by us immediately.

The storage of chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This is also our legitimate interest, which is why processing is permitted under Art. 6 Para. 1 Book f, GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of the data provided in the chat is also Art. 6 Para. 1 Books b and f, GDPR.

Further information can be found in the Data processing terms of Userlike UG (haftungsbeschränkt).
